Description & Analysis

The high mintage of 1929(P) quarter dollars is reflected in the great availability of this issue across all grades through MS 65. Most examples are well struck, though they may be deficient in the troublesome area at the left side of Liberty's shield. Full Head coins are relatively plentiful. Collectors can afford to be picky with this entry in the series, and they should avoid coins struck from worn dies. While these may still possess the FH feature, erosion lines will have blurred the wall lines and peripheral lettering.
